One of my best friends and "partner in crafting" gave me some embroidery lessons (both in person and via phone/text/youtube videos). I think machine embroidery is my new addiction. LOL!
FAVORS: I can't take credit for this idea. Once again my best friend introduced me to the chocolate snowman creations. She made some for school faculty during the holidays and I borrowed her creative idea to make favors for the party guests.
BANNER: Not a lot to say here. Every little girl needs a 1st Birthday Banner, so I made one. :-)
Now for the fun part! I has so much fun embroidering a bodysuit, bib, and quilt for the birthday girl. I even embroidered matching shirts for her older sister and my daughter.
